>> thank you, margaret. as margaret mentioned, we are now the cq roll call group, we merged last august and it solidified our position as not only the largest news group in washington covering congress, but we're also owned by the economists group, which gives us a global perspective and of interest to a lot of the folks in this room. cq has been dog this for years, and last year, we sat at this podium and tom dononue facing a grim economy in an incoming popular president, we had not supported, declared he would work with the administration, but vowed to fight the policy that he saw would smother the spirit of american enterprise, the power of the american dream. well, chamber was very successful in winning a number of their fights, but the president also had success. cq records that in the last six decades, no president had as much legislative success as obama, with over 97% legislative victories.
